Museum Partners sought for Horizon 2020 Science programme

The Frederick University in Cyprus is looking for partners in science museums in order to submit a project proposal under the HORIZON 2020 programme - Science with and for Society - under the topic: “Innovative ways to make science education and scientific careers attractive to young people” - SEAC-1-2014.

The submission deadline is 2nd October 2014.

The project aims to focus on assembling experimental devices using recycling materials while the partner’s collaboration could be focused on designing, organising and evaluating interactive workshops in the partner’s museum, where the visitors-participants working in groups of 3-4 people will be encouraged to build mechanisms similar to selected museum exhibits by using recycling materials.

Interested organisations are invited to express their interest to Dr Zena Poulli as soon as possible.
